(Reuters) - U.S. President-elect Joe Biden has chosen David Kessler, the ex-head of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to help lead the COVID-19 vaccine push, his transition team said on Friday. That expanded role will include replacing Moncef Slaoui as the chief adviser for the vaccine distribution effort the Trump administration called Operation Warp Speed. As head of the FDA, Kessler cut the time needed to approve drugs to treat AIDS and moved to try to regulate the tobacco industry. Biden has vowed to get 100 million COVID-19 vaccine doses injected into Americans in his first 100 days in office. In a bid to expand vaccination efforts, the Trump administration said Tuesday it was releasing millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses it had been holding back for second shots.

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File PhotoBiden has promised to take more serious action to curb the virus than his predecessor, President Donald Trump, and get 100 million vaccine shots into the arms of Americans during his first 100 days in office. In announcing his stimulus proposal, which includes $20 billion for vaccine distribution as well as $50 billion for coronavirus testing, Biden pledged to “move heaven and earth” to vaccinate more Americans. The Trump administration had aimed to give vaccine doses to 20 million Americans by the end of 2020, but fell far short of that target. Only 11.1 million coronavirus shots had been administered as of Thursday out of more than 30 million doses distributed to states, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The administration says it expects to reach 1 million shots a day by the end of next week.

A man who was photographed holding a Confederate battle flag inside the U.S. Capitol last week during the riot was arrested Thursday in Delaware, two law enforcement officials said. The man, Kevin Seefried, was wanted by the F.B.I., which had sought help from the public to identify him and had widely circulated a dispatch plastered with images of him. In a bulletin, the agency said that it was looking for assistance to identify individuals “who made unlawful entry” into the Capitol, including the man with the Confederate flag, now identified by The New York Times as Mr. Seefried. The top federal prosecutor in Washington said this week that he expected the number of people charged with crimes tied to the Capitol riot to rise into the hundreds. On Wednesday, federal agents made more arrests in New York, Maryland, Texas and Florida, among them a firefighter from the town of Sanford, near Orlando.

Tourism accounts for 87% of Quintana Roo’s gross domestic product, said state Tourism Secretary Marisol Vanegas Pérez. The state lost some 90,000 tourism jobs — only 10,000 of which have come back — and countless others that depend on tourism. In December, Quintana Roo was averaging 460 air arrivals and departures per day compared to a pre-pandemic average of 500, Vanegas said. They accounted for 9 out of 10 foreign tourists, Vanegas said.

Supporters of President Trump had descended on Washington to protest Congress’ ceremonial certification of the Electoral College after weeks of his baseless claims of election irregularities. warned local law enforcement partners that armed protests were being planned in all 50 state houses and the U.S. Capitol. Lawmakers were left rattled; several confided afterward that they were fearful of re-entering the Capitol this week. At the Aztek Barber Shop in Alamo, Alejandro Silva, 27, said he held nothing against Mr. Trump and did not have an opinion about the border wall. Mr. Trump was expected to take his megaphone to the platforms, and tens of thousands joined those sites expecting him to land there.

ET Live Updates: Trump Shows No Contrition for Inciting Mob, Calling Remarks ‘Appropriate’ The House will vote on a resolution on Tuesday calling on Vice President Mike Pence to wrest the powers of the office from President Trump. RIGHT NOW In a tacit break with Trump, House Republicans will not formally lobby against his impeachment. They were confident they had the votes to make Mr. Trump the first president ever to be impeached twice. Representative Kevin McCarthy, left, the Republican leader, said he will “personally” oppose impeaching President Trump. Sixteen groups — some of them armed and most of them hard-line supporters of Mr. Trump — have already registered to stage protests in Washington.
